Record Layouts 3-1

Introduction
This section provides all the record layouts needed for you to create your own software to participate in the Electronic Data Exchange (EDE) process.

Request Title in ISIR Files
To identify the group of ISIRs belonging to your datamart requests, a request title for each query is returned in the resulting ISIR file sent to your school. The title appears as the first detail line in the ISIR file after the SAIG header record. The title will be in positions 1 to 50. Positions 51 to 2975 will be blank. In addition, to ensure that the ISIR data from CPS for all ISIR records is consistent for your school’s software, this request title is part of the daily and pushed ISIR files you receive. For these ISIR files, the first detail line contains all blanks in positions 1 to 2975. Examples are listed below: ISIRs received as a result of a datamart request Line 1: O*N05 record (SAIG header record) Line 2: Request Title (up to 50 bytes of description from the datamart query) Line 3: First ISIR record meeting request query Line 4: Second ISIR record meeting request query Line 5: O*N95 record (SAIG trailer record)

ISIR received as part of daily ISIRs or pushed ISIRs Line 1: O*N05 record (SAIG header record) Line 2: Blank line Line 3: First ISIR record sent to your school Line 4: Second ISIR record sent to your school Line 5: O*N95 record (SAIG trailer record)

Changes to the Correction Field Numbers
In the Correction Export Record Layout we renamed the SAR Field Number to CPS Correction Number. You will need to use the CPS Correction Number (CPS Corr #) found in the Correction Data Entry Specifications Table in Section 4 of this reference instead of the SAR Field Number when you submit your correction data. We made this change because the CPS needs to assign a unique sequential number to fields for correction purposes. In the past the SAR numbers were sequential and were used to submit correction data. Because we no longer list the same number of college choices and housing codes on the paper FAFSA as on the Web, the SAR numbers are no longer sequential and cannot be used to submit correction data. The paper FAFSA and SAR only have space for four college choices and housing codes, numbered 97a through 97h. The Web application lists six college choices and housing codes, numbered 97a to 97l. In order to have a single set of field numbers for processing corrections, we have assigned an internal, sequential number (the CPS Corr #) to each data element. This number will be the same as the SAR number until the college choice fields, at which point the CPS Corr # will continue to be sequential and will differ from the SAR number.

Important Notes: See the Introduction section on page 3-2 for information on the request title, which is returned as the first record of an ISIR File. The title appears as the first detail line in the ISIR File after the SAIG header record. The title will be in positions 1 to 50. Positions 51 to 3250 will be blank. New for 2007-2008: The second column has been renamed from SAR Field # to FAFSA #. This column no longer defines the SAR number associated with the field, but instead the FAFSA number.

Each day after FAFSA records are processed, this data file is created to inform schools about the ACG data submitted by applicants. Each file that you receive will include all applicants for that day who have listed your school code in any of the six school choice fields on the transaction on which the ACG data was submitted. If a school code is added to a record in a subsequent correction, the ACG data will be sent to the new school. Each student record that has ACG data submitted and is potentially eligible for the grant will have at least two of the following Comment Codes set in his or her ISIR record: 268 through 271.
